It's time for Works For Me Wednesday over at Rocks In My Dryer, so I'm sharing these cute and delish chocolate sundae cups that definitely "work for me"! That's right, they're chocolate. These cuties work for me because they are different than your normal sundae cup, are simple to make, and they add that special little touch. You can also store them in the freezer until you want to use them. Love that! Just pull one out when you're ready to use it. They are perfect for a Valentine treat for your sweetie or for your next party! Here I've made sundaes with all the fixins, but they would work just as well for mousse, pudding or just to hold candies. Have fun with it! I've gotten rave reviews from my husband and my kids with these! Be sure to get the recipe below.
This is what the sundae cups will look like once they are chilled in the fridge.
Chocolate Surprise Sundae Cups
1 c. semisweet chocolate morsels
1 Tbsp. vegetable shortening
Foil cupcake liners
1. Set out eight foil cupcake liners. Place chocolate morsels and shortening in a small microwave -safe bowl. Microwave about 1 minute, stopping to stir at 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.
2. Spoon 1 Tbsp. chocolate into a liner. With the back of a small spoon, coat bottom and sides with chocolate to form an even layer about 1/8" thick. Repeat with remaining chocolate and liners.
3. Refrigerate 15 minutes or until firm. Gently peel off foil liners, being careful not to handle the chocolate too much. Discard liners. Refrigerate chocolate cups until ready to use or wrap individually in plastic and freeze.
